Are these things worth the cost or are they just a glorfied gym bag? Thanks.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the QSC covers/bags, other than they're more expensive than they should be.

 

However, going without bags/covers is a huge mistake, as the cabinets on the K series are prone to scuffs and scrapes that make them look cosmetically shabby (pretty much my only complaint about these fantastic speakers). The bags keep them nice and safe, and allow you to carry them vertically (via the top handle, accessed through a little velcro-held flap) or face-down (like a 'gym bag', with handles on the case as shown in the pics on the QSC website).

I got the bag for my K-10, and I'm glad I did. Much easier to move it without scuffing it up.

 

I had to pay for it from Sweetwater, but that was OK with me.

Why would you spend $600 or so (depending on the model) and not spend another $60 or so on something to protect it? I'm glad I have the QSC covers for my K10s. They still look (nearly) as good as the day I bought them even after much schlepping.
Indeed. Spending 10-20% of the cost of a piece to protect it while moving it is quite reasonable IMO.

It is not about the money. It is because I have never used bags. I don't know how much padding if any they provide.

 

I have always bought road cases for things that need protection. I don't know how much protection a bag actually provides. But a pair of Roadhawg cases are going to nullify the how compact these speakers are to carry.

 

Thanks.

The padding is enough. With the QSC's, the main thing is protecting the back, where all the connectors and dials are. The bag does this VERY nicely. I don't treat my gear with kid gloves, and I'm really pleased with the K10 bag.

It really depends on how you haul things. For carrying the QSCs in and out of vehicles to gigs, the QSC bags are more than sufficient. If you place them at the bottom of B van filled with equipment, they are not going to cut it.

I'm going to have my wife make a cover for me. We have some marine grade vinyl we bought for a motorcycle seat project that never materialized, there should be enough of that to make a simple protective cover. My K10 is only in my van, only loaded by me, and taken care of, so I don't think a padded case will be necessary, just a simple guitar amp type cover will do the trick.

I use a pair of covers for my K10's (and my EV SxA 100+ pair) that were made by an EBay vendor with sewn material. Not suited for commercial carrier or roadies, but I load in my van and transport with some care. They are slipover like the guitar amp covers, have nicely made places for both top and side handles, and have worked well on the EV's for a year and half. Priced a bit less than one of the QSC bags for a pair.
